Too much to do, so little time, so freakin lazy, and I’m going crazy.


It’s been forever since I last  worked on my pet project, It’s like 2 weeks, its probably because I’m adjusting to my new schedule and school stuff, plus I needed a rest it’s been two months since I last slept well because of my work, and I really needed a break.

While I’m on break I always think of a ways to get closer to coding, lol in my mind there are a lot going on, I can’t focus on one things because I’m too busy thinking other stuff. It’s like walking in a strange place and doesn’t give a damn on new things I see, for example there are a lot of new faces I see in the campus, including freshman chx, but I didn’t gave a damn. I’m thinking of a lot of things that I feel like my brain is about to explode, and thats a bad sign.

Anyways first week of schooling is awful almost all of my colleagues are busy on their OJT and its like I’m out of place. I don’t have anywhere to hangout except the INTERNET cafe and it sucks because I had to spend 60 pesos just to passed 4 hours of time so I can go home in the afternoon. and I don’t really have a choice so ya.

Actually I had a choice, I could go to the new library at our campus but the question is what the hell am I gonna do in there. I’m even lazy enough to work on my project and its like forcing me to study 4 hours just to passed time and thats fucked up. Now I missed working, school is really boring. Work is fun because you receive money by doing what you love and that’s something everybody wants.

Anyways last few days, something came up after I woke up,  EUREKA!!!!

I decided that to get me started on coding again, I though of learning Object Oriented Programming on PHP. It’s useful because I’m working on my Web App and its a good plus if I have also knowledge in OOP.

What I did in order to get started in studying OOP, I have to do a quick research on what is OOP. Then I found out that I already took this or familiar with OOP, it’s is included on ICT121 Data Structions, the typedef student struct(){} thingy if you still remember. And Sir Victor Lapin an application developer also taught me some techniques in OOP and that gave me idea about OOP.

Anyways it turns out that the concepts is quiet hard, I have to do several trials so that I can grasp the idea and then created my own OOP and added it to my pet project.  At the end of studying I came up with this codes.

?php
class Database {
public $host = "localhost";
public $username = "root";
public $password = "";
public $database = "InventorySystem";

public function __construct() {
$this-->

public function MysqlCheckConnection() {

/**

* @desc Check if the mysql_connect is succesful or not.

*/

if (!mysql_connect($this->host, $this->username, $this->password)) {

die("Cannot connect to <a class="zem_slink" title="Database" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Database" target="_blank" rel="wikipedia">Database</a>, please fix Connection/ folder.");

} else {

return true;

}

}

public function MysqCheckSelection() {

/**

* @desc Check if there is a database to select.

*/

if (!mysql_select_db($this->database)) {

die("Cannot select a Database, Database $this->database does not exist please fix Connection/ folder.");

} else {

return true;

}

}

}

$connect = new Database();

It’s really great because I have discovered new perspective in programming, I can now create custom functons and define what specific commands I would implements.

So overall its really fun learning OOP, though I only learned the basics, I will push through and continue to moderate level of OOP.

The above codes is my codes in connecting to the database, though its not that necessary to OOP that db connection but I feel like it and its cool!

Quick Update:

I’ve started on my InventorySystem, I will post its repository in my next post probably this week because I had to complete its interface.

I will also edit the source code page and put links to my github account for those who wants to develop the site further.

Peace!
